Roo I'd send the fiancÚ over to have a chat with her. Consider how you'd feel about her riding with permission first. It may be enough to say that it was not acceptable to ride there without permission but if she helps out with x y z she can continue to ride there (good way of getting things done)

And yep there are regional attitudes. You also seem to easily tell the difference in people from the south and people who have moved here recently. I wouldnt want strangers traipsing around but I don't consider my neighbors strangers. I see people calling for signs, shootings, and all kinds of nasty behavior to your neighbor. Guess that word means something different to me. Glad I don't live near you guys.

Right now I am in Texas and my neighbors are very respectable about private property. My nearest neighbor has pasture on both sides of mine. He always comes up the front drive to ask if he can move his cows through my pasture to get the other side. He used to lease our place before we moved in...he could very easily assume he could go back and forth through our place. I always tell him that he can of moves his cows through of course.
By the way he was born and raised in Virginia....

Oh, and yes I do feel like shooting someone if they came through without asking and left gates open.

We had put a sort on a large amount of steers, and had them staged in a couple different pastures close to the corrals.
Someone came through the ranch during the night, didn't close the gates properly and the cattle had mixed. We had about 10 cattle trucks waiting on us to resort and load.....not happy, all could be avoided by some respect for private roads and property.

It's polite to ask permission first. I leased a horse a couple of yrs ago where the only trails available were on private property. The owner of the barn (where I leased) had permission from all the land owners to ride on their land and we always cleaned up any poop the horses left behind. It's just good horsey etiquette :)

I agree that it IS trespassing (not to mention downright rude!) to ride on anyone else's property without their express permission.

That said - it does not surprise me to hear that this neighbor of yours has "helped herself" to your land and your trails. I'll bet it didn't even OCCUR to her to check with you first - common sense and courtesy seems to be going the way of the dinosaur these days!

I would also be willing to bet, that if confronted, your neighbor will consider YOU to be the rude and disrespectful one...

I'm a believer in community. There is an agreement in my area that I have no problem letting someone ride on my property and they have no problem letting me ride through their's. I would be a little upset that she did not ask for permission, in your case, but I don't know if I would make a big fuss about it. What happens when you have an emergency and may need some neighborly help?

That's what friendly neighbors are for, and we would do the same for them. ;)

I am looking at a map. TN is further south than VA.

Yes, TN may abut VA in some places, but it's definitely a more southern state.

I live in south central VA. It's not a 'southern thing' to expect to just be able to waltz across property that belongs to someone else without asking permission. Rudeness and self entitlement are hardly what I'd call 'southern hospitality'.

Around here, if you don't ask permission first don't be surprised if you're met by a skeeved off property owner packing a firearm. They don't have the time or patience for ignorant people who think they can traipse all over property that doesn't belong to them.

It costs NOTHING to be polite and ask. It also shows the property owner that you respect their privacy and land, and will adhere to their wishes. I've found that asking usually garners permission. If it doesn't, then I just don't ride there. Easy peasy!

Didn't read through this whole thing but I can tell you that I am glad that I grew up riding 10-15 years ago that's for sure! I used to ride all over on neighbors land/fields literally had thousands of acres that we could ride on with out anyone getting offended or upset that we are out there. We always made sure that we closed gates and were not a menace but hardly ever asked for permission either. If we saw the landower out and about we would go over say hi and not once in all those years was I ever yelled at or told to get off. Lots of times we would wander over and check guys cow herds out and if there were any lame/sick ones give him a call and let him know.
All of theses were pasture quarters and may be different if we were trying to ride through some ones yard but all the same it was a great experience that saldy lots won't get the option to do. I own land and would have no problem with someone coming on to my place as long as they keep the gates as they find them and respect my property.

In the past couple of years in particular there seems to be this huge thing about property rights and what is mine is mine and the rest of you better stay off, which I think is pretty sad that it has become that way.
